A 1940 U.S. Chevrolet wooden side panel truck captured by Rommel's Africa Corps is shown in full desert warfare gear, including black-out driving lights, roof-mounted spare tire, knobby military tires, snap-on windshield canvas "awning," canvas side tarps, rear quarter panel mounted gasoline jerry cans and rack, and German military unit markings. Beside it is a Mercedes staff car, rigged for desert operations. Note the tow line wrapped on the front bumper.
